Mega toy-maker Mattel is going all-out for this year’s [email protected], with a slate of brand-new items. The first is Ultimate Edition Sgt. Slaughter.
And that’s… an order!
Reveals and announcements are coming in fast and furious now for Comic Con 2021. The second (and hopefully last) [email protected] has seen a few big announcements thus far, but if you’re a fan of Mattel’s IPs, then your show is just getting revved up.
The toy-maker has announced 12 Days of Fandom, which will see a slate of new reveals. And the activation has started off with a bang, with one of the all-time greatest WWE Superstars – Sgt. Slaughter.
Slaughter has already had a few figures in Mattel’s WWE line, including an awesome in the Elite series. But even so, this new one’s by far the most impressive.
Technically a part of the “Ultimate Edition” sub-series, this new figure stands head and shoulders above even other offerings in that set. And that’s especially true if you’re a long-time fan of the Federation.
Check out the packaging for why:
Now that’s awesome. An already great looking figure, the Sarge comes with a full-on, throwback LJN-style cardback. And that’s not even mentioning the box, which is also pretty freaking slick.
As for the figure itself though, he’s depicted in a brand new costume that I’m pretty sure was last seen as a mail-away back in the ’80s. There’s a story behind that one, but the long and the short of it now, is that it’s neat to see that Mattel has brought it back for this exclusive.
The particulars are below, including where and when you’ll be able to (try to) grab one of these for yourself. But make sure you check back here daily for more of these kinds of exclusive unveilings, and follow Mattel on Instagram for up to the minute stuff. You can find them @mattelcreations.
